Bit rude of NT to just drop that on the organiser without warning. BE also messed up a lot of venues recently by removing International status from them. Hambledon is not going to run any more a great pity as it was always very well supported. I wonder who is going to step in and replace it at what is event planning very short notice.

such a shame, always felt like Belton was the first proper spring outing, seems very short-sighted decision

Very sad but I do understand the reasons behind the decision I think given the importance of the event the NT could have given more notice .
BE will have to chuck some money at another venue with blessed going .

We are losing so many venues locally (a lot due to development) I wonder how people will compete in future.

Its a shame, i really enjoyed Belton on the two occasions that ive been. It also sounds like it was badly handled by the NT. i appreciate their reasons, although didnt see any signs of damage to the land when i went. I did go on good years weather wise though.

So badly handled by the National Trust. They could have given a bit of notice rather than just drop it like that. Me cynical too!

Anyone seen the latest from Stuart Buntine? He says he has been offered 3 castles and 5 stately homes? 😁
